Former NFL safety Rodney Harrison was a guest on Pro Football Talk with Mike Florio and shared a couple of examples of what some superstitious players would do in order to get a hold of a certain jersey number.
“[A] guy offered another guy $50,000 for his number and the guy said, ‘No way, I need my number,’” Harrison said. “It just shows you how superstitious these guys are and how connected they are to their number. But at the same time, then the next thing was probably the craziest thing, money, people offer that all the time, but the guy said, ‘Hey man, I’ll allow you to sleep with my girlfriend.’ Once he said that, I lost my mind. I said no way can it be that serious. I said, ‘Obviously you don’t love your girlfriend that much.’”
